SUICIDE LOSS SUPPORT GROUPS: WEBSITES
Losing a loved one to suicide is difficult and can come with a lot of complicated emotions. There
is support available to help survivors of suicide loss like you, your friends and family cope with
the loss. The aftermath of a loved one's suicide can be full of confusing and painful emotions. If
you are struggling, the Lifeline is always here to provide support.
o Find a support group. You don’t have to cope with your loss alone. There are support
groups specifically for those who have lost a loved one to suicide.
o Do what feels right to you. Don’t feel pressured to talk right away. Do what feels right to
you. If you choose to discuss your loss, speaking can give your friends and family the
opportunity to support you in an appropriate way.
o Write. You may find it helpful to write your feelings or to write a letter to your lost loved
one. This can be a safe place for you to express some of the things you were not able to
say before their death.
o Ask for help. Don’t be afraid to let your friends provide support to you, or to look for
resources in your community such as therapists, co-workers, or family members.
Healthy Park County
The death of a loved one by suicide presents special problems in grieving. There is often more
shock, a greater sense of injustice, more guilt and blame, a heightened sense of helplessness;
and these all tend to complicate the healing process for survivors.
The Surviving Suicide Loss Support Group is a safe place for survivors to share their loss with others who are experiencing similar thoughts and feelings. The group is free to attend, non-religious and open to all survivors
of suicide loss.
Suicide Prevention Resources for Survivors of Suicide Loss
The organization produces a monthly newsletter and runs the Suicide Loss Helpline (1-800-646- 7322), which is available 9 a.m.–9 p.m., seven days a week. It has also published the guide Pathways to Purpose and Hope, which provides comprehensive information on building a community-based suicide survivor support program.
